    Swansea City away

    ....but we WILL win games when we have our 1st 11 fit....

    Swansea City away

    We're finding it much more difficult to score when it's 0 -0, than when we are 2 nil up. That's down to quality and temperament. This is difficult when we need to score 3 or 4 to win games with our 2016 defence. Sigh...

    I'd be very happy with a point looking at that line-up. All down to whether we can manage to score as many as we concede. As always. COYB!!!

    Rovers vs Reading at Virtual Ewood

    Unfortunately, when analysed without emotion, we have been unable to match, dominate or beat anyone in the top half. When this changes consistently, we can talk about a top 6 challenge. Regardless of recent form, we will not be promoted with Williams in the team. I know this is currently a controversial statement, but nobody has EVER suggested he would be the answer to our defensive inadequacies, either in our relegation season, or today. We will contunue to be an entertaining team that ships goals. This is heartbraking, as just like everyone else, I have been swept along on the tide of emotion as we have soundly beaten the struggling teams, and made some positive signings. The Forest result showed more or less where we sit in the division.

    Rovers vs Reading at Virtual Ewood

    We all agree about Gallagher being played out wide, but just as relevant is how many times he lost, or was unable to control the ball tonight. Every time it came to him? More or less. If we play him in the middle, he will score 3 or 4 more goals, but will break our attacks up single-handedly just as much as he did tonight. It. Is. Not. The. Answer. Having said that, BB was equally guilty of elephant-like ball control until a month ago, but we have been watching SG for 5 years. It's a long apprenticeship, and it will be a lot longer, I'm afraid. What is TM seeing to keep persevering???

    Rovers vs Reading at Virtual Ewood

    Regardless of current form, I don't think we'll make the top 6 if we build our defence around Derek Williams & JRC. Regardless of their limitations, I think we should go with Nyambe, Ayala, Lenihan & Douglas, and stick with them til xmas. As always, we will need an Aderabaiyo in Jan if we are to make the top 6. We need to tactically match the top teams, which may be our downfall. The earlier point about having the same central defensive partnership as 4 years ago, says it all at for me, and only Tosun's loan spell has papered over the cracks. How a single game can change your total mood and outlook is worrying. For me, anyway. Feel better now I've shared.... Will be back with undying optimism by the weekend.

    Coventry v ROVERS

    Ooops, sorry. I'm way behind, cheers.

    Coventry v ROVERS

    I would take Douglas off, as he needs a run in the side which an unlucky 2nd yellow would delay. No more bookings today should be the advice. I really think this squad will now challege the better sides, there aren't many, and not just the cannon fodder. COYB

    Summer Transfer Window

    Like every Rovers fan, I'm desperate to be proved wrong, but the fact that our £12 million strikeforce will both be on the bench when everyone is fit, is all I need to say on this.

    Summer Transfer Window

    When the 200 million is written off, and we are in the 18 team Premier League, we will begin to recover, but we will never 'get over it'....

    Summer Transfer Window

    I think the point about this untimely Venkys debate is that when someone criticises them in any way, most Rovers fans, after 10 years of pain and depression, accept and understand this sentiment, and when one of us points out any positives from their reign, most Rovers fans cringe, wince, and try not to respond negatively to such premature naivety. Anyone that continues to forget, forgive, or appease will continue to attract derision and consternation. Sorry.

    Summer Transfer Window

    Our surprising (but definite) starting line up this season: Kaminski Nyambe Lenihan Ayala Douglas Holtby Trybull Johnson/Travis Armstrong Dack/Brereton Elliott When fit, Dack will play a No 10 role behind Elliot and Armstrong, or in a flat front 3, with Holtby pushing forward, if Elliott plays more traditional winger role.

    Summer Transfer Window

    Sounds crazy, but as well as quality defenders, we need a 15-20 a season goalscorer by 16 Oct. (to be more assured of a play-off spot). Around 13 million should get us one. Oh...

    Summer Transfer Window

    Apologies for the ignorance, but can we still lose Armstrong, or anyone else, to a PL club til 16th Oct?

    Cardiff (H) - Saturday 3rd October 2020

    Interesting comments about Nyambe. I honestly rate him as a decent defender, but if he's not performing to his usual levels, I think it is because Mowbray hasn't backed him and played him every game as he has always performed when he has had a decent run of games. I think he has got the ability to create chances in the final third, as he has shown over the last 2 seasons. I would play play him every week, and watch him blossom.
